Our Spanish Legal Team in San Pedro have reported a worrying trend in some Spanish mortgage products. Many of these products are now moving away from there 10 year interest only period and moving to repayment. The issue we are finding is the jump in payment amounts is very substantial.
EU Property Solutions recently completed a settlement for a client whose mortgage was moving from interest only to repayment, the jump in the payment amount was €1,000. More worryingly, this repayment period commenced when the client was at retirement age. This highlights the loose lending practices of lenders pre 2008.
Many ask can I leave the keys to my property with the lender and walk away. You can, BUT the risk involved is very high. By doing this you are putting your home assets in jeopardy. On once case we completed a client had acted in this manner towards the Bank and they placed a charge on the client’s own home here in the UK. It is essential that should you no longer wish to maintain and keep your Spanish property that you amicably liaise with the lender.
